There are just 18 games remaining in the 76ers' regular season, and coach Doug Collins has some words of advice for rookie forward Arnett Moultrie during that span. "When he's out there, just bust it," Collins said following practice Friday. "When he gets a little tired I'll take him out, but I don't want him pacing himself. I want him, every minute, pushing hard. " With the Sixers likely to miss the playoffs this spring - nine of their last 18 games are against teams currently in playoff positions - the focus is going to change.

Just the other day, 76ers coach Doug Collins and associate head coach Michael Curry were having a conversation about team depth. It's always a good conversation to have - especially if you have depth - when preparing for another season. However, for the Sixers, the good news is that the conversation wasn't about the top eight spots as they see it. Instead, Curry and Collins were talking about players nine through 14. Specifically, they were discussing what they had seen out of the two rookies in camp, 6-foot-1 guard Maalik Wayns and 6-10 power forward Arnett Moultrie.

One of the reasons coaches choose their profession is that they are imbued with a tenacity that won't allow them to give up. That doggedness earned 76ers coach Doug Collins coach-of-the-year votes after he resurrected the Sixers from a 3-13 start to finish the 2010-11 regular season 41-41 before Miami eliminated them in the first round of the playoffs. That same tenacity was on display last season when the Sixers, following a 20-9 start, sputtered home, 15-22, the rest of the way. They reached the playoffs and eventually the second round only because they won four straight road games at the end of the season.

WITH ONE player's misfortune comes another's opportunity. While Thaddeus Young stiff-legs his way around the 76ers' bench for the next few weeks, rookie Arnett Moultrie should get an ample amount of playing time and give Sixers fans a look into what he might be able to bring in the future. Young will be out at least 3 weeks with a Grade 1 left hamstring strain suffered in Monday's win over the Orlando Magic. So, while the Sixers were already shorthanded in the low post with Andrew Bynum's season-long knee injuries, losing Young is that much more devastating.

ORLANDO - This gimme 5 might cost some dough. According to ESPN's "Around The Horn" panelist Pablo Torres, new Sixer Nerlens Noel plans to wear No. 5 next season as a thumbed-nose to the five teams that passed on him in last month's draft. Take that, Cleveland, Orlando, Washington, Charlotte and Phoenix. But wait, the last time Arnett Moultrie put on his Sixers jersey, it still had the No. 5 on it. "He ain't getting the number," Moultrie said yesterday. "That's my number. But anything is negotiable.

DALLAS - Brett Brown was asked Monday about Arnett Moultrie, the 76ers' injured power forward. "I don't even know Arnett Moultrie," the team's coach jokingly responded. "He's a ghost. " Brown went on to rave about the sidelined second-year player's weight loss: The 6-foot-10 Moultrie has dropped 12 pounds and now weighs 228. "He has bought in in a big way while not doing anything," Brown said. Moultrie is not expected to play until January after undergoing preseason surgery on his left ankle.

The 76ers signed rookies Maurice Harkless and Arnett Moultrie on Tuesday. Harkless was the 15th overall pick in last month's NBA draft. The Sixers acquired Moultrie, drafted with the 27th pick overall pick by Miami, by trading the draft rights to Justin Hamilton (45th pick overall) and a protected future first-round pick.

PHOENIX - It's easy to get full of yourself the day after going to Los Angeles and handling the Lakers they way the 76ers did on Tuesday. The Sixers got 26 points, 10 assists, and one turnover from Jrue Holiday as they strung together perhaps their most complete game on this Western Conference road trip to beat the struggling Lakers, 103-99, at the Staples Center. The win caught national attention mostly because Kobe Bryant called the Lakers a soap opera this season, an "old" team.

Andrew Bynum's agent, David Lee, said Tuesday that the 76ers center would have his knees examined again on Dec. 20. Bynum has not played this season for the Sixers as he recovers from bone bruises to each knee and weakened cartilage. He will have a battery of tests conducted, Lee said. The agent added that the swelling in Bynum's knees had gone down. Bynum's personal physician, David W. Altchek, will conduct the examination in New York.   Nick Young sits again The Sixers' bench was again without the services of swingman Nick Young because of a hyperextended left big toe. Young missed his first game of the season Saturday in Chicago with the same injury.

The 76ers are unsure when Thaddeus Young will return to the team. The organization will only say he's not with the team due to personal reasons related to his family. Multiple sources have said the power forward is dealing with the death of a family member. "He's not available, and we're going to allow him his space and let him handle the situation as he feels it best suits him and his family," Sixers coach Brett Brown said before Friday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks at the Wells Fargo Center.

Whatever the expectations going into Sam Hinkie's news conference last week - and, frankly, there weren't many - no one anticipated he would get around to Casper Ware before it was over. Hinkie is full of surprises, though, and bringing up Ware was a reminder that the 76ers general manager is just as intent on what he can acquire for a roster-filler as he is for a reigning rookie of the year. It's all part of swapping nickels for dimes and hoping that adds up to a jackpot somewhere down the line.

Arnett Moultrie was at 76ers practice on Monday afternoon, finishing the two-hour session with a light rebounding drill. It proved to be the last action of his tumultuous Sixers career. Moultrie, 23, was traded to the New York Knicks later in the day for a 2019 second-round pick and Travis Outlaw. Both Outlaw and Moultrie were immediately waived by their new teams. The move creates salary-cap space for the Knicks as Moultrie is due to make almost $2 million less this season than Outlaw.

Marquis Teague needed an opportunity to show that he can contribute in the NBA. The 76ers needed to look at another point guard. Both sides will get a chance. The Sixers acquired Teague and a 2019 second-round draft pick from the Brooklyn Nets on Friday for Casper Ware. The Sixers are the third NBA team for the 6-foot-1, 189-pounder since January. The move will save money and create a roster spot for the Nets, who are expected to waive Ware. Brooklyn would have owed Teague his guaranteed $1.1 million salary if they cut him. He has a $2 million team option for the 2015-16 season.

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - The 76ers now have tough decisions to make. Do they keep Casper Ware as the third point guard? Have Malcolm Lee and Chris Johnson shown enough to make the roster? And will Brandon Davies' status as a great locker-room guy outweigh his on-court limitations for the second straight season? The deadline to trim NBA rosters from 20 players to 15 is Monday at 5 p.m. Coach Brett Brown had said the Sixers would release players after their final preseason game.

MINNEAPOLIS - Without a key component, the 76ers got a look at their present and what could have been their future Friday night. Henry Sims scored 17 points and added six rebounds, but the Sixers fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves, 116-110. Brandon Davies had 13 points, K.J. McDaniels and Drew Gordon each had 12 points, while Tony Wroten, Arnett Moultrie, and Casper Ware scored 10 each for the Sixers, who are 1-2 in exhibition play. Down by 13 midway through the fourth quarter, Davies had four points and Sims three during a 12-2 run to get the Sixers within three with 2 minutes, 14 seconds to play.

WE'VE SEEN him launch jumper after jumper after jumper. He runs stay-in-shape, timed sprints after practice when his teammates have headed to the showers or recovery areas. There isn't a hint of injury, no hitch in the shot, not a grimace or even a grab at his surgically repaired right shoulder. At a glance, Michael Carter-Williams appears to be more than ready to jump back into the point guard spot he mastered into NBA Rookie of the Year honors last season and show what kind of progress he's made, going into Year 2. But that probably won't happen anytime soon.

BOSTON - The 76ers' first preseason game in the middle of a major organizational overhaul, isn't really all that important. It's more of a reward for the players to finally get to go up against other players instead of continually beating up on one another. It did, of course, mean a little bit more to Nerlens Noel, who was making his professional debut (Summer League doesn't count). Noel had plenty of family and friends in the stands near his hometown and the jitters seemed to be overflowing for the big man. He seemed understandably rusty, committing two fouls in his first 4 minutes.

Sam Hinkie's dramatic overhaul of the Sixers' roster moved forward Saturday as the oft-discussed trade of Thaddeus Young was finalized. As reported and confirmed Friday, the Sixers sent their longest-tenured player to the Minnesota Timberwolves for two players on expiring contracts and a first-round draft pick next season. "Thank you Sixers & Philly fans for 7 wonderful years. My family & I will always hold you close to our hearts," Young wrote on Twitter. "Minnesota . . . I'm ready to work and bring my hardworking attitude Philly gave to me. " Young, the Sixers' first-round pick in 2007, was coming off his best season.

The last limb of the old tree was lopped off Saturday, when the 76ers traded forward Thaddeus Young as part of a three-team swapfest that brings back two ordinary bench players and a future first-round draft pick. To be honest, and this is the reason for all the lopping, it wasn't that much of a tree to begin with, but it was all the Sixers had during the end of the pinchpenny reign of Father Comcast and the start of the Joshua Harris ownership era. It was sturdy enough in the weather of an NBA season to win 40-45 games and make the playoffs, but never a whole lot more than that.
